Chip for the 3.7..

Ive made some threads in the past..but never really acted on anything as there wasn't anything that really stuck out. Basically, warranty is ran out and ready to mod the engine. Im looking to do a chip and intake to start out. Can anyone suggest a good tune for the 3.7? I know some are quickly changed by the computer and loose the gains(jet chip). Can anyone suggest a good tune?

I have an 08 with the 3.7L and have the stage 2 jetchip. I believe that is the only chip available right now. The stage 1 is garbage and works only at WOT. The stage 2 works great and at all throttle positions. I had to do a custom free flow exhaust and run 91 octane but it is well worth it. I promise you with the stage 2 the computer will not set itself back to factory with the stage 2. They say to use a 180 thermostat but I don`t and it runds fine. Also ramair makes a intake sensor performance mod that a lot of people have had good luck with. If you do any tuning just make sure to use 91 octane and a free flow exhaust. I hope this helps.


Here is the link to the ramair site.

They say you have to use a free flow exhaust with the stage 2. I think it has something to do with the timing and a ugpgraded exhaust takes full advantage of that. I don`t like a loud exhaust either. I put on a magnaflow muffler and it sounds fine but louder than I like it. I have a 9x11. They make a 11x22 which you would barely hear at all unless you get on it past 3K RPM. I know a lot of people bash the jetchip but I think it is a nice peice just don`t get the stage 1. I bought mine at
